Melding nostalgia with contemporary artistry, the husband and wife team of Vintage Industrial Furniture in downtown Phoenix, creates hand-made, industrial-inspired furniture built to last.
Starting the furniture business in their garage in 2009 after designing and building a table for his wife, lead designer and owner Greg Hankerson is now creating custom pieces to ship across the country from a 6,000 square foot historic Phoenix building, saved from demolition by our favorite local real estate renegade, Michael Levine of Levine Machine. The Wright Chair, named for Frank Lloyd Wright and based off the famous Toledo design, is currently belly-up at The Arrogant Butcher in Phoenix and at Smith Commons in Washington DC.
The furniture, mainly inspired by French industrial era, is commercial grade, and works well into an array of interior styles. And the most unique and functional feature of most pieces are the distressed casters, making the move of a 700 pound kitchen island easy, even for one person. Surprising to Hankerson, the casters themselves have become big business. Orders come from around the world for their uniquely treated casters ranging from $150 – $300 for a set.
We visited the warehouse headquarters of Vintage Industrial Furniture and fell in love. The handmade pieces work well into many styles of interiors, and if you don’t find what you love, Greg and his team will customize any of his current pieces or custom design a cocktail table or kitchen island for you.
